Aegon Pensions – Pensionfinder
AEGON Pensions are designed to help those heading towards their twilight years save and have piece of mind with the knowledge that they will be financially secure when they can no longer work. AEGON actually began life as Scottish Equitable in 1831 before becoming AEGON UK in the 1990s. Although their headquarters are in Edinburgh, their registered address is actually in London. AEGON pride themselves on providing expert financial advice to those unsure about their pension plans.
Product range and speciality products
AEGON realize that planning ahead is vital to have a chance of a bright future so they have a range of products and services for individuals and businesses. Obviously, first on their list is a pension plan to make sure that you are not reliant on the State Pension alone. There is also the option of annuities which are effectively a means of earning cash during your retirement as opposed to pensions which are saved before you end your career. Then there is also the opportunity to invest in onshore bonds or offline investments. Either could be construed as a risk but AEGON offer a secure income option to protect your investment.
AEGON doesn’t forget companies and the choices for businesses on the site include trustee solutions which offer advice to occupational pension schemes regardless of their status. AEGON benefit solutions offers some of the best communication software in the business which gives companies fantastic information and advice. Their global pensions scheme helps businesses from all around the world decide on pension packages.
Up until last year, AEGON only sold their products through Independent Financial Advisors (IFA’s) but have since set up a site dedicated to selling to the public. However, at present, customers do not receive the same advice options on the direct site as they do on the IFA one.
